A brand new week can mean a lot of things. For customers of the Epic Games Store, it means a new free game goes up for grabs. Taking the place of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection this week will be the adorable and equally frustrating co-op cooking game, Overcooked. Developed by Ghost Town Games, the free game will be available until June 11, 11:00 a.m. ET. This offer follows in the footsteps of other popular titles, such as Grand Theft Auto V, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, and the aforementioned Borderlands collection.
Overcooked first cooked up a storm back in 2016. Even with a sequel now out and doing very well with both critics and fans, going back to the original remains a fresh and exciting experience. Up to four players control their own chefs and take on varying challenges in increasingly complicated and absurd kitchens.
Recipes change up, as do ingredients, and it can be an adrenaline rush trying to fulfill all kinds of orders. There is plenty of fun to be had, especially with a group of people, but the frustrations can easily boil over as well. Overcooked usually costs $11.99, but now you can guarantee a good time for nothing with the Epic Games Store.
Overcooked continues the awesome value the Epic Games Store gives to its customers. Since the start of December 2018, the storefront has offered a free game every week for its consumers. Come this August, perhaps the biggest catch to date will land. According to an announcement earlier this week, Sega and Creative Assembly’s A Total War Saga: Troy will be free for its first 24 hours after launch. And that launch will take place exclusively on the Epic Games Store.
Not only that, but this coming June 11 will also see the Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection launch for free as well on the storefront. From June 11 to June 18, the game can be claimed for free on the Epic Games Store for the low price of nothing.
